Nobility and grace are restored in this filigreed design. Originally crafted by the Queens' Binder "A," one of the most prolific binders of the Restoration period, the balance of open space and intricate elements makes it a shining jewel of the period.The Queens' Binder was a name given to a small group of English craftsmen during the "Golden Age of English Bookbinding." They were best known for their unique pointille outlines. The binding reproduced here was designed to hold Richard Allestree's The Government of the Tongue. As provost of Eton College, Allestree was an esteemed clergyman and royalist, and it is no surprise that the Queens' Binder was commissioned to bind his work.Modern research indicates that the Queens' Binder was in fact four distinct shops, and even individual binders such as "A" could refer to multiple artisans. While the name of the binder called "A" is not known, there is no doubt as to the regency of this gilt binding, which is now a part of the Henry Davis Gift at the British Library.
